The 'Fifth Estate' main star voices a wolf leader who heads a high-tech animal organization in the 'Madagascar' feature film spin-off.
A picture from "The Penguins of Madagascar" arrives online. It gives a first look at Classified, an alpha wolf who leads a covert protective agency for animals. The new animated character will be voiced by "Sherlock" actor Benedict Cumberbatch.
"I don't know what it's like to be a penguin, but I do know what it's like to be a super-duper-smooth classified agent," the Julian Assange of "The Fifth Estate" jokingly said when discussing his voice role in the spin-off of the popular "Madagascar" film series.
The film gives more depth to Skipper, Kowalski, Rico, and Private in their own spy thriller directed by Simon J. Smith and Eric Darnell. Set for November 26 release, it's supported by Tom McGrath, Chris Miller (II), Ken Jeong, Christopher Knights, John DiMaggio, and many more.
